Hi Philip,

I have a doubt,, 
if i have configured my network as static ,
then  while booting does Linux search for dhcp
server... and if not, then that interface should come
up properly without any issues....

it is like , if Linux is taking IP from DHCP then
there is no problem... and if it the IP is static then
Linux has no problem bringing up eth0 using that IP. (
i think it doesn;t check for DHCP )

Then what is the problem........
